After the exciting reveals of the Ghost crew in the Ahsoka teaser trailer, many Star Wars fans are excited about the futures of formerly animated characters being brought into the live action shows. Here are 5 characters who are most deserving of the live action treatment.

Alexsandr Kallus

Now that the Ghost crew have moved to live action, this mutton-chopped former Imperial officer deserves the chance to join them by Ahsoka’s side in her new show. While Kallus may have begun his time on Rebels, he later grew as a character, even becoming a rebel spy. His relationship with Zeb in particular would be a great starting point for the show to introduce his character and continue to develop another great Star Wars redemption story.

Hondo Ohnaka

It’s about time that everyone’s favorite space pirate gets the chance to shine in a live action show or two. After a series of hijinks in both The Clone Wars and Rebels, Hondo became a major character on the Smugglers Run ride at both Disneyland and Disney World. Now the fans of Star Wars, big and small, are familiar with him, it is the perfect time for him to bring his chaotic energy to a show like Skeleton Crew or Ahsoka.

Satine Kryze

With the expansions of the stories of both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bo-Katan Kryze, it is a little astonishing that someone so impactful has not even been mentioned. Satine, the former duchess of Mandalore, was incredibly important as a pacifist leader, Obi-Wan’s love interest, and Bo-Katan’s sister, before her untimely death separated her from those she cared about forever. It would be wonderful to see her character get an Armorer style flashback from Bo-Katan in The Mandalorian or at least be acknowledged as a historical figure as the Mandalorians attempt to reclaim their world.

Asajj Ventress

Asajj was first presented as a villain in The Clone Wars but grew to be so much more in an intense and emotional journey through the show, losing her family and her Sith ways to become a bounty hunter. Her story was then expanded upon in the canon novel Dark Disciple, where she was unfortunately killed. Although her story appears to have ended, it wouldn’t do for a character so complex to be forgotten forever. It is uncertain how she could make a live action debut, but flashbacks or any shows that take place before her death could provide fans with the chance to see Asajj in a new light.

Barriss Offee

Okay, technically Barriss already had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it role in the background of Attack of the Clones, but most fans know her from her recurring appearances in The Clone Wars show. Her relationship with Ahsoka has been extremely tumultuous, as they were once good friends… until Barriss framed Ahsoka for a bombing on the Jedi Temple. There have been several rumors that she will show up in the Ahsoka show when it premieres in August, so we may be seeing her very soon, amid the drama of her past betrayals.
